Hello and welcome! We put this sheet together to try to organize the civic tech field by compiling thousands of civic technologies and social processes to see what patterns emerge. We think that a field guide would help us: share knowledge with one another, attract more participation in the field, study and measure impact, and move resources in productive directions.About the Civic Tech Field Guide:
